Photoshop Eye Tutorial by jht888 Photoshop Eye Tutorial by jht888
Due to a large number of request over the last few months, I have decided to put up this tutorial on how I create the eyes that I do on my paintings. I consider the eyes to be the single most important feature and if you can get them right, you will be well on the way to creating a beautiful portrait.
This is the way I do the eyes and other artist will have their own ways of doing things. I find this works for me and I really hope this works for you.

If you want to see an example of how would fit in to a full portrait, then please take a look below plus my nose, mouth, hair and ear tutorial

 

Thanks for taking the time to take a look :squee: If you have time please leave a comment, fav it or add me to your Watch list :happybounce:

Oh for the iris, I do two or three layers of lines, all hand painted in all different tones for each layer. Thanks again for leaving a lovely comment :clap: :D

Thank you so much for this tutorial. I've been meaning to follow it for a few weeks now, but just got round to it tonight. I'm really pleased with the result.

I have a bunch of your tutorials in my favourites folder, they all look really useful. I appreciated the lack of explanation next to each step, because it allowed me to focus on observing each picture to work out what you'd done in each one to move the painting forwards, and let me try out different ways of achieving the same thing without worrying I wasn't using the right tool set to the right size or whatever. Explanations can be very useful for some things, but for this I found the simple approach far better :)

I really love your tutorials and want to try a portrait, too.
But I've got one Question. How long  does it take you, for example, just to draw the eyes?

Thanks for your great comment :D A whole portrait usually takes me around 6 - 9 hours depending on how realistic I want to make it. A pair of eyes around 45 - 60 minutes. I love painting the eyes, it doesn't matter to me how long it takes as for me, once the eyes are right, the rest of the painting will follow. Most importantly, don't rush your paintings, enjoy just doing them. I hope this helps :bow: :w00t:
